Extremely rare albino kangaroo arises in warmer weather

ODESSA, Ukraine (NBC/EBU) — A newborn albino kangaroo has made her first public appearance at a zoo in southern Ukraine.

Albinos are extremely rare among these animals.

This particular snow-white kangaroo was born two months ago, but its mother showed it only now when the weather got warmer.

The zoo’s director said they don’t know the exact date the baby was born since the mother delivered it in the kangaroo’s winter premises.

The baby kangaroo doesn’t have a name yet.

Visitors to Odessa Zoo will be able to submit their suggestions in a naming competition.

The newborn kangaroo can be seen here getting to know her new surroundings.
